I am planning to order this chasis with 20 SATA Drives

It has only chasis and powersupply.

How am I supposed to use this.

As I have understood I need to add motherboard to the chasis and make it as NAS.

But my main question is how do I connect 20 SATA drives to motherboard.

DO I need motherboard with 20 SATA connections

  • If you have no idea how to use it, why are you considering buying it? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 May 9 '14 at 16:31

It is a rack mount case for a server. You need to put a server motherboard in it. The normal approach would be to have a RAID capable controller card that attaches to the mobo, this will have all the connectors on it.

The last but one picture in the details shows such a controller board in place, recognised by the many red connectors.
